Beside removing ALL the cancer, some much needed bone that will never be there again, and some nerves that control his leg, he has developed a blood infection that they are now battling along with edema that is making it hard for him. Each day has been unpredictable and everyone is rallying around to assure his comfort and meet his needs. Every time he makes progress, something will pop up and set him back.
One thing that would raise his spirits is his children. His X only lives 15 minutes from the hospital. I wish there was a way she could bring them to see him every day for visit or even every other day.
Last Thursday, he was finally going to see the kids again. We were all excited! Then just before their arrival time he had some problems that held up his visiting. While the doctors and nurses were working on him, we were outside the room in the waiting area when down the hall the kids came running up. We had to stop them from going into the room until they were done with him. It took another 30 minutes before he was able to have them come into his room.
Finally he got the much needed hugs and love from his kids...
These words are on the tree as you look up under it to the sky.
